The Monsters were formed in 1986 in small-town Bern, capital of Switzerland. Their sound is a
fuzzed-out mix between 60’s garage punk, wild teenage trash rockabilly and primitive rock’n’roll.
Its 187% no MTV and top 100 shit ! The actual lineup is guitar, bass and the so-called clonedrum:
means 2 drummers with only 1 1/2 drums, hitting the same bassdrum from each side.
Besides the countless shows in Switzerland, The Monsters played extensive tours through Europe
including Germany, France, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Austria, England, Denmark and Spain. In 2003
the band toured Argentina, Brasil and New York. The Monsters are a kickass live band who will
burn every stage down.
Over the years, The Monsters recorded 6 albums, several singles and ep’s and appeared on
countless compilations. The record « Youth Against Nature » was recored in the now famous Toe
Rag Studios (London) by Liam Watson and Robert Butler (Miracle Workers). « I See Dead People »
came with a 1000-piece puzzle, booklet, sticker and button and was already sold out during the
The Monsters appear on Voodoo Rhythm Records, Switzerland. The label is famous for it’s taste
and style, as it is for the beautiful artwork. Voodoo Rhythm is run by Beat-Man, who (by
accident…) is also the singer and guitar player of The Monsters. Beat-Man played – and still plays in other projects called Lightning Beat-Man, Reverend Beat-Man, Die Zorros and some more. As
a one-man-band he toured all of Europe, played venues such as Jazz Festival Montreux, Frat
Shack, Dour Festival, Eurocene and Las Vegas Grind (USA) on the same bill with acts like Dick
Dale, Public Enemy, Ramones, Prince, Ramstein, Bob Log III and more.
In 2021, The Monsters announce new album « You’re Class I’m Trash » (Voodoo Rhythm, Slovenly,
Sound of Subterrania).
